Rome. —Cardinal Achille Ratti, arch
bishop of Milan, was proclaimed elect
eel pope in succession to the late Bene
dict XV Monday morning. He has
taken the name of Pius XI.
The thousands waiting in front of
St. Peters for the wisp of smoke which
would tell of the election of a new
pope or the failure of the sacred col
lege to reach a decision, gave a mighty
shout at 11:33 o’clock when a thin
wisp of smoke came from the chimney
leading from the sistine cltapel. It was
then known that the Catholic church
had once more a duly elected pontiff.

the throne of the chosen one, accom

of the cardinal priests and the cardinal
deacons. He was asked in Latin by
Cardinal Vannuttelll, in accordance
with custom, if he accepted the elec
tion to the supreme pontiff, and the
new pope answered with the formal:
‘since it is the will of God, I must
Then the purple canopies over the
thrones of the cardinals were let down,
one by one, until only that over the
new pontiff, remained. This was done
to show that the whole sacred college
rendered obeisance to the new head of
the church. Dean Vannuttelll there
upon asked the new incumbent what
name he chose to take during his pon
tificate. and upon his reply “Pius XI,”
Monsignor Sincero, secretary of the
conclave, verified his election to the
papel chair.
The new pope then was escorted to
the sistine chapel, where he discarded
his cardinal’s robes, assisted by the
conclavists, and the papal vestments
which had been held in readiness since
the opening of the conclave, were
placed upon him.
The pontiff, fully vested with the
papal garb and accompanied by his
cardinals, thereupon returned to the
throne he had occupied in the sistine
There the cardinals, according to
their rank, made their first, act of
adoration to his holiness, kissing of the
pope’s feet and then his hands, after
which the pope received them in em
brace and bestowed upon them his first
apostolic benediction.
“Fisherman’s ring” was placed on
his finger, and he left, the chapel, the
whole assembly wending its , way
through the sala ducale and the sola
regia, along the loggias to the Sala
Clementina, the pope’s official resi
dence. All along the way he received
the homage of the attaches who served
during the conclave.
Reports were current Sunday night
that a new pope had been chosen, but
that out of deference for America the
announcement would he deferred until
the arrival of Cardinal O’Connell of
Boston Monday morning.

indication of the substantial improve
ment in business activities predicted
for January,” the report said, “the In
crease in employment in metal pro
ducts other than iron and steel and
maintenance industries is the encour
aging feature.

Declares Receipts Will Exceed
Expenditures as Result of
Budget System.
Washington.—Announcing prospects
of surplus government receipts over
expenditures this fiscal year as
a result of economies •in administra
tion, President Harding, speaking at
the second business meeting of the
government, declared he doubted “if
any government in the world has made
a more persistent and conscientious
endeavor to cut down its expenditures
and institute economies and restore
sane and normal ways again,” than
has the American government.
The president and Director Dawes
of the budget, who followed him, an
nounced to the meeting, composed of
more than a thousand government of
ficials of high and low degree that di
rect savings of $32,000,000 and Indi
rect Ravings of more than .$104,000,000
had been accomplished In less than six
months through the operation alone of
the Jnidget bureau and co-ordinating
agencies. Mr. Harding expressed the
further opinion that the efforts on the
part of the government toward econ
omy had been reflected among the
people at large.
The president reiterated his oppo
sition to deficiency appropriations and
made a plea for an understanding
among officials of the government that
the common good, not departmental ad
vantage is the end at which all of us
must work.
Discussing th? prospects of a surplus
instead of a deficit as was generally
expected, Mr. Harding appealed for a
continuation of the careful and pains
taking effort which had been made
continuously during the first half of
the year.
The prospect of a surplus when com
pared with the estimated deficiency of
$24,500,000 outlined in the budget fig
ures submitted to congress in Decem
ber is certainly an occasion of much
satisfaction to all of us.
